And apparently, it’s a real disease, cause I’ve been sick as a dog for the past four days. Luckily for me, that means I have plenty of time to park my behind on the couch and watch all the drama unfold at the Olympic Games in Beijing. And there’s plenty of drama to enjoy.
Y’all, how amazing is Michael Phelps? The 23-year-old swimmer picked up his 10th and 11th gold medals last night, making him the winningest Olympian in the history of the games. And he’s still just a kid! Amazing.
But all my joy over Phelps was lessened a bit after the U.S. women’s gymnastics team lost the gold to the Chinese team. Yes, some of our girls fell, and that certainly sealed their fate, but it has to be said that there’s some shady business going on with that Chinese team. They’re all 15 or 16, according to their government-issued papers, but judging by their diminutive size (even by gymnast standards) and the fact that China has a relentless hunger for gold during these games, I have my doubts. And apparently, so does the New York Times.
Swimming and gymnastics are my two faves, but what’s got you pumped during the summer games?
